This semi-detached period house sits in the popular St John's area and is a short walk from local shops, sought after schools, the recreational ground and excellent transport links.

Arranged over three floors and set back from the road by a low wall, this home's handsome painted brick exterior provides plenty of kerb appeal.

An entrance door to the side of the house welcomes you into the stylish kitchen. It is well designed with plenty of Shaker style cabinetry topped off with warm wooden work tops. Brightened by double aspect windows, there is space for a breakfast bar for you to enjoy your morning coffee. Integrated appliances such as a Siemens dishwasher, Neff double oven and four ring induction hob, make it a cook's dream.

Behind, past a useful guest cloakroom and a separate utility room, is the family/dining room. It is a generous space which is easily zoned for dining and living. The dining area is conveniently placed near to the kitchen and beyond, flooded with light from double aspect windows and French doors that open into the garden, a seating area is perfect for family life and entertaining.

At the front of the house is the charming living room, its part shuttered window drawing natural light in. There is plenty of space for family sofas to relax in and it benefits from an open under stair recess, with space for additional furniture.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are two bedrooms, both generous doubles with large windows, and a bathroom with the shower over the bath.

A further flight of stairs takes you up to the second floor with the wonderfully bright third bedroom enjoying roof top double aspect views and a Velux balcony. There is lots of eaves storage space too.

Outside to the rear is a pretty low maintenance garden with an area of artificial grass and a paved terrace, perfect for summer dining. There is a further paved terrace to the side, which is covered, giving you a great social space for entertaining and relaxing all year round. Double wooden gates give access to the road and the area could double as a covered car port, for the right sized vehicle. The garden is fully enclosed, making it a safe sanctuary for children and pets.

This home has been cleverly renovated and updated by the current owners to create a bright, stylish family friendly house. A must see!
